Retail giant Walmart will pay $20 million to settle allegations of discriminating against women who didn’t get jobs filling orders at the company’s grocery distribution centers.
The case originated with complaints by two women at the Walmart distribution center in Laurel County, but will create compensation for women nationwide.
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission alleged that Walmart discriminated against women at distribution centers across the country. There are 44 of those centers, said commission attorney Aimee L. McFerren.
